CIT 1 is a 3 week long program for campers entering 11th grade (and who are at least 16 years old by the start of camp). The CIT program is a learning intensive program intended to help individuals who might want to become camp counselors to make the transition from camper to staff member. Although the CITs have a great deal of fun and can participate in many camp activities there is a large academic component to being a CIT. Being accepted as a CIT will involve an interview with the CIT Counselor before camp beings. Staff ratio is 1:10 campers.
